Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Knights Valley|
This Cabernet is built each vintage on the notion of a Bordeaux blend, with soft and silky tannins crafted for immediate enjoyment. Aromas of lavender and clove join flavors of dark red fruit led by boysenberry, huckleberry, raspberry, black cherry and evident oak spice are joined with more traditional Knights Valley tones of black and blue fruits. Fine acidity and elegant structure lead to a touch of licorice and mocha, rounding out a lingering, pleasant finish.
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley) is a dark, powerful wine. Scorched earth, tobacco, smoke, grilled herbs and black cherry jam infuse this deep, flavorful Cabernet Sauvignon. I would cellar the 2016 for another year or two, as it is quite forbidding today. Although not quite the screaming value it once was, the Knights Valley Cabernet is a terrific wine for the money."
